    Doctor Adroc Thurston 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/adroc_hi_evolution.png

Renton's frequently mentioned father, who was a member of the United Federation. Due to the presence of two adaptations, some of his qualities overlap between the installments.

Original Series

Adroc later made a costly mistake when he disturbed the Coralian Command Cluster with an experiment to draw out the full power of the Nirvash by using the Amita Drive. The planet was wrought with disaster and destruction when virtually all other Trapar-dependent devices and Scubs went out of control. Because of this, he gave himself to the Command Cluster to stop it from running wild. He left behind a plan to fight the Coralians if it ever came down to it, which would become a serious issue for the world thanks to one corrupt person coming into power and abusing these ideas.

Hi-Evolution

He is the Decoy Protagonist of Hi-Evolution. He held the rank of Colonel and was a scientist of high regard. His research of the Scub (Scab Coral in this timeline) eventually led to his discovery of Eureka, and he became her father figure. Adroc's continued experiments as he grew further interested in the sentient beings did not go as planned. The Sage Council decided to attack the Scubs against better judgement after Adroc developed a plan to control the Coralian Command Cluster. Although it is unclear what happened, Adroc's misused plans caused a global crisis and he poured all his efforts into trying to stop the Scubs from repeatedly doing harm to humanity and causing numerous casualties. He was also the one who first taught Eureka about humanity and tried to teach her emotions, and a mentor to the Novak brothers.

At the age of 35, he would be at epicenter of the event called Operation Necrosis as a draftsman, the master plan to finally lull the Command Cluster which controls the Scubs to rest. Adroc's idea was taken to an extreme he disapproved of, because the Sage Council had developed a threatened and warlike attitude toward Coralian life despite the discovery of a humanoid Coralian, and there was a high risk to the planet's welfare involved, which caused him to object to its implementation. Desperate to attempt anything at this point to protect the human race, the Sage Council and the military refused to back away from the operation, and the military had no choice but to place him under custody. Adroc in return had no choice but to go renegade with Eureka to pilot Originate Zero to stop the operation of the superweapon, co-piloting the first LFO which would later become more well-known as Nirvash. He caught a guard by surprise and shot them with their firearm, then took hold of an automatic weapon and forced his way down to the KLF hangar.

As he feared, a hitch in the plans resulted in the ultimate weapon of humanity's knowledge, Silver Box, releasing its incredible power on the wrong object, the Earth. Adroc now had only one option: to give himself to the Command Cluster and directly communicate to the core to contain this power surge. Adroc merged with the core, and in his final moments, re-christened his operation the First Summer of Love. He vanished and seemingly gave his life to prevent a calamity with the Scub Coral that already resulted in bloodshed.

Often hailed as a hero, Adroc knew he was anything but that, and is actually responsible for death on a grand scale. Likewise, Renton doesn't share that sentiment of his father being a hero on account of the fact his dad was up and gone before he was old enough to remember him, and is annoyed with the badly ravaged world left behind to the next generation.

Voiced by: Toru Furuya (JP); Fred Tatasciore (EN)

  • Ace Pilot: The original co-pilot of Nirvash Type ZERO in its original body type design. Since Nirvash only allows a chosen few to operate it, Adroc certain earns his stripes for proving worthy of it. Zig-zagged in that he couldn't operate it on his own, and only a Coralian could make it respond, but in his fervor to stop the destruction caused by Silver Box, Nirvash allowed him to take control on his own after he ejected Eureka from the cockpit.
  • Adaptational Attractiveness: Adroc's face is slightly less chunky in the Hi-Evolution series, though this may be because of Art Evolution since the early and mid-2000's.
  • Call-Forward: He turns out to be the source behind the "Don't beg for something, go get it yourself" sentiment that Diane imparted to Renton. She evidently learned it from her dad. He also personally renamed "Operation Necrosis" as "The Summer of Love" as what the sages interpreted as a hopeful message to humanity.
  • Chekhov M.I.A.: Is absent for the vast majority of the series, with his disappearance left a mystery. He finally shows up in Episode 47.
  • Death by Adaptation: In the manga, Dewey murders him in cold blood for learning too much about the true nature of the Scub.
  • Hero of Another Story: The first Hi-Evolution movie gives him a real speaking role and shows he was the original co-pilot of Nirvash to Eureka, and the one who taught her how to feel emotion.
  • Famed In-Story: Basically everyone knows who he is and there is a famous memorial dedicated to him for what he did. Unfortunately, some of those legends gloss over his mistakes and the atonement he had to make, turning him into a pedestal for the military and a bunch of jingoistic garbage.
  • Heartbroken Badass: Heavily implied in the passages of his journal in Episode 47, where he reveals some terrible things happened to him that made him want to give up living, likely the death of his wife and being guilty of an incident that cost many their lives and having to redeem himself. Hi-Evolution proves he is ultimately responsible for causing a cataclysm.
  • Heroes Want Redheads: He married Blau, a redheaded woman, and later became hailed as a hero.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: It embodies his character to the point it's almost the only thing to distinguish him. Adroc gave himself to the Scub to stop their antibodies from running wild and destroying the planet, and to stop Silver Box from compounding the problem by bombarding the planet with electromagnetic radiation that made the Trapar energy overflow and cause mass destruction.
  • Manly Tears: He broke down and cried as he was about to sacrifice himself to the Scub Coral, thinking back to his family and bidding farewell to Holland. He was also shown a glimpse of the Earth as it was untouched by Scubs, which was so beautiful it moved him to tears.
  • Neutral No Longer: Adroc had no choice but to turn a gun on United Federation soldiers to gain control of Originate Zero and pilot it to stop Silver Box. He lamented becoming a murderer to save the world.
  • Redemption Equals Death: He accidentally caused a tragedy that cost scores of people their lives, and decided to give his own to make up for it. Subverted in that he lives on as an energy life-form among the Scub.
  • Refused by the Call: Ultimately, even though he was able to pilot the Nirvash, he couldn't become Eureka's true partner, and was thus fated to eventually be relieved of his position.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Unlike his namesake, Ad-Rock of the Beastie Boys, his official anglicised name is spelled without a 'k'.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: Both the original series and Hi-Evolution show he was one. The original series was where Adroc caused a global disaster by attaching the Amita Drive to Nirvash but not being Eureka's true partner, and the Ageha Plan would be used by Dewey in even more destructive ways. In Hi-Evolution, the Command Cluster had been disturbed by Adroc in some way in a similar manner, perhaps by the Amita Drive all the same. When Antibody Coralians were plaguing humanity, Adroc spearheaded Operation Necrosis, a plan to still the Command Cluster. His creation, a warhead called the Silver Box, was meant to harness Trapar energy and link it to the sound of music to calm Scub Coral. However, there was an immense danger to using the weapon which he knew would spell disaster for the planet, and Adroc tried to stop his own plan by force. Surely enough, the operation went awry when Silver Box failed to sync with the cluster in full; the connection was incomplete. Dewey tried to fly into a highly unstable area full of Trapar that was too turbulent for flight. He crashed and did not make it to the Silver Box in time to manually connect the device to the cluster. Instead of releasing the energy intended to placate the Scub into the Command Cluster, Silver Box went into "multiplize" while linked up to the planet Earth. This caused a planet-wide surge of energy that blew off the upper layer of crust and decimated the surface of the planet. What this meant in short- a weapon meant to save humanity caused a cataclysm. Adroc then had to personally force the Command Cluster to shut down by entering it himself. However, this agitated all the Scub across the planet for years to come.
  • The Voiceless: In the original series, he doesn't speak. This is because the producers couldn't come to a consensus about who would do his voice portrayal justice, so he was portrayed as a Heroic Mime. They finally sorted it out a whopping TWELVE YEARS later.
  • Vomit Discretion Shot: Adroc threw up the first time he killed someone (a guard keeping him under custody), barfing his guts up not only in a sink, but while in zero gravity from the signs of puke littering the corridors.

    Blau Iglasias Thurston 
Adroc's wife and the mother of Diane and Renton. She was Yucatan Iglasias's sister and a resident of a Colombian-like village called Controlad, where Adroc met her and fell in love. Sadly, her second childbirth resulted in her demise, and this was one of the events that sent him spiraling into depression and the throes of the military. Not much else is know, but a few morsels about her can be extracted from paying close attention to specific details.

  • Death by Childbirth: Never outright said in the series proper what took her, but the final episode confirms her date of death was the day Renton was born, twelve years after giving birth to Diane. This is explicitly stated in the manga. The exact details of why she died is a mystery.
  • Doting Parent: Hinted at. The one thing we can infer about her is that she wanted her son to be well-educated, to the point where Axel felt really bad letting him drop his formal education prematurely.
  • Driving Question: Why did she die giving birth to Renton? That much is never answered. Twelve years beforehand she gave birth just fine to Diane, but whether age was a factor and the passage of time weakened her too much is unclear.
  • Farm Girl: Came from a Pancha nut plantation in Controlado.
  • Fiery Redhead: By process of elimination, she had to have red hair, as Adroc's is brown, and so is Renton's, but Diane's is red, so the hereditary gene must have come from Blau. As for the fiery part, she's from a Latino region called Controlado and her brother is boisterous and has a Spanish first and last name, so Spicy Latina may apply.
  • Meaningful Name: Oddly enough, her name is the German word for "blue". This, when she was clearly from a place where the natives are Latino (or similar). Perhaps one of the parents was Germanic?
  • Missing Mom: In the very first episode of the series, she gets one very brief mention that confirms she has passed on. It's in a diner in Bellforest, after Axel has reluctantly made the decision to pull Renton from junior high school because his grades are so poor that he's unlikely to get into the military, let alone high school (the Japanese system of schooling is more traditionally split up between elementary, middle, and high schools, and you need to take entrance exams for high school). Axel laments how he's ever going to explain to Renton's late mother about the decision to let him drop out of school.

    Axel Thurston 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Axel_Thurston_3512.png
Renton's strict yet loving grandfather.

Voiced by: Takeshi Aono (JP), Steve Kramer (EN)

  • Adapted Out: He's nowhere to be seen in the Hi-Evolution films. It's not explained why Axel isn't there, but apparently in this timeline, Renton lives alone (despite being officially adopted by Beams). His original Japanese voice actor had passed away before Hi-Evolution 1 was made, but there is no official word that confirms if this is why Axel has been left out.
  • Cool Old Guy: He's a talented mechanic who works his hardest to get a job done, like making the Nirvash's new ref board and racing as fast he could to deliver it to Renton and the others.
  • Crazy-Prepared: In the manga, he tells Holland to go to work while throwing a wrench from his toolkit at his head that's specifically labeled "For Holland".
  • Dark Secret: All throughout the series, Axel lets on that he is reluctant to have anything to do with LFOs, but is knowledgeable about them to an almost disturbing degree. He was personally involved with the development of the original LFO, the Nirvash. Since said LFO was later used to assist in a corrupt military's "mission" to wipe out a perceived menace that was actually a pretext for cold-blooded genocide, it makes immense sense that Axel wants to wash his hands of the matter.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: The biggest in the world.
  • Go-Karting with Bowser: He and Dominic got along really well, even though Dominic was still on the villain team at the time. He even taught Dominic how to fix his bike, and Dominic promised to check up on his grandson. Then again, he never finds out what side Dominic was on at the time.
  • Heartbroken Badass: His wife Rose is long dead (as implied by a family record shown in the closing moments of Episode 50, the finale of the original series), and Axel is understandably very reclusive and unwelcoming to outsiders.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Despite how he originally treats Renton and his aspirations, he ultimately supports him. He also is helpful to Dominic and later accepts the children Eureka fostered as adoptive grandchildren.
  • Outliving One's Offspring: Both his son and granddaughter are gone, hence why he's initially not too eager about Renton's thirst for adventure, fearing that he'll lose him as well. On top of that, his wife has been gone for much longer than either of them.
  • Scars Are Forever: He has burn scars on all of his fingers and marred fingernails, likely a result of his work as mechanic. It's never stated exactly how he got them; they're more less an aesthetic touch to show he's been through a lot of hard times.

    Rose Thurston 
The barely-mentioned late wife of Axel Thurston.
  • Meaningful Name: Combine her name with Axel's and you get a very obvious reference to Axl Rose, in a series already chock-full of loving music genre nods.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Squeezed in as a mere mention at the very last minute of the original series in a blink-and-you'll miss it family record.

    Diane Thurston 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/diane_thurston.png

Renton's long lost sister and Holland's ex-girlfriend.

Voiced by: Sakiko Tamagawa (JP), Peggy O'Neal (EN)

  • Ascend to a Higher Plane of Existence: She's become part of Scub consciousness and can only be seen and interacted with once someone's consciousness begins to cross the boundary of the Great Wall, the place where the line between the Scub reality and human reality is blurred (AKA the place where the Command Cluster exists and you start to get pulled inside if you let your consciousness reach out to the Scub, as it will link up to yours and reply). Renton sees a vision of her shortly before passing out. It's unclear exactly how Diane got there and if she can freely enter and exit or if Renton just happened to be seeing her as he started crossing over into it.
  • Be Yourself: Renton gets upset at Diane for not having the confidence to speak to him directly when she's using the Scubs as a buffer to talk to him and eventually demands that he speak only to her. Diane's eyes then regain their features and we see that she's actually having trouble expressing her emotions at her brother's return properly.
  • Broken Bird: In "Fantasia", Episode 36, she has clear signs of this, because she went through a breakup with Holland. Diane decides she has nothing left to live for in the world she lives in and can't hope to understand, so she goes to seek the Scub. She's still pretty out of it in the Command Cluster and seems to have buried her emotions, because initially can't bring herself to talk to Renton in person the first time they interact after reuniting and has the Scubs influence the talking for her.
  • Chekhov M.I.A.: A defining part of the series is Diane and her disappearance's effect on Renton and Holland. It is revealed that she had a relationship with Holland and somehow found her way into the control cluster with her father.
  • Dating What Daddy Hates: Or what Granddaddy hates, that is. Suffice to say that Axel didn't approve of Holland. Renton didn't either, as he stole Diane's shoes from the entrance of their house to keep her from leaving to go out on one of her dates.
  • Demoted to Extra: In the manga, Diane is a much less significant character. Diane is merely mentioned to have left home and her disappearance is not relevant to the plot. Holland's close relationship with Diane also disappears from the narrative and Holland has a mentor-student relationship with Adroc Thurston instead. Hi-Evolution has also reduced her to only appearing in a photo Adroc had with him.
  • Dull Eyes of Unhappiness: She has some tremendously chilling-looking ones when she glances at Holland lifelessly in Episode 36 with a broken smile on her face after realizing that their relationship is in tatters. This is also how she looks when the Scub are communicating through her.
  • Emotionless Girl: When she allows the Scubs to speak through her, her eyes turn hollow and she speaks logically like the Scubs have learned how to interact, much like how Eureka used to be. It's a little creepy...
  • The Faceless: Her face isn't shown for the first 35 episodes. Under many different circumstances, her face in flashbacks and photographs is always covered, and Holland has scratched her out of all his old pictures of her, having lost his affections for her due to her apparent abandonment of him.
  • First Love: To Holland.
  • Married to the Job: She was obsessed with her father's research; so much that it affected her relationship with Holland.
  • Parental Substitute: She is the mother figure to Renton in lieu of the one Blau never got to be.
  • Promotion to Parent: She and Axel were the ones who raised Renton after Adroc's death.

    Yucatán Iglasias 
Blau's brother and the brother-in-law of Adroc, uncle to Renton and a resident of Controlado who owns a Pancha Fruit farm/plantation. Appears in "Human Behavior".

Voiced by: Yutaka Nakano (JP); John Snyder (EN)

  • Badass Beard: His beard and appearance itself bears a strong resemblance to that of the famous Jet Black of Cowboy Bebop.
  • Eagleland: He's an overly-enthusiastic patriot who's too caught up on the image of glory to see the poisonous side of military.
  • Glory Seeker: Obviously a nostalgia-drunk and sometimes actually drunk middle-aged man who lacks the sense and patience to know what he's really supporting.
  • Good All Along: While he seems to be an antagonistic figure to Gekkostate for a short amount of time, he sympathizes with his nephew and honors his wishes. Yucatán chooses to be on their side and helps foment a lie to the United Federation forces to give them a chance to escape capture.
  • Properly Paranoid: In his Establishing Character Moment, he corners Renton, Eureka, and Matthieu with a rifle, accusing them as fruit thieves and making it clear he's a man who shoots first and asks questions later. However, with a fruit said to be one of the top three most healthy ones in the world (and stinky like a durian), he has a right to protect his cash crop, as it's likely he's dealt with thieves in the past.
  • The Munchausen: Guilty of spinning loads of tall tales about Adroc to fluff up his gloating, much to Renton's chagrin. It really drives him up the wall when Yucatán takes the boasting so far that he forgets his nephew never knew his dad and has seen what happens when somebody is blindly driven to have faith in an institution without knowing what they really do.
  • Nice Hat: Wears a commanding officer's hat.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: He inadvertently causes Gekkostate's enemy to close in on them by thinking they are bad guys and tipping the federation off.

    Charles and Ray Beams 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/eureka_seven_eureka_7_2257160_1024_768.jpg
A pair of mercenaries-for-hire and a loving couple. They hold a grudge against Holland and Gekkostate in general.

In the past, prior to their marriage, Ray Norton and Charles Beams were expert KLF pilots who participated in Operation Necrosis on the front lines. Ray suffered major injuries when Silver Box damaged the Earth, which made her unable to bear a child.

Charles is voiced by: Jurota Kosugi (JP), Patrick Seitz (EN)
Ray is voiced by: Aya Hisakawa (JP), Melissa Fahn (EN)

  • Affably Evil: They're a nice couple who take Renton into their wing. Too bad about their resentment of Eureka.
  • Alas, Poor Villain: Ray dies like this, reaching for the wedding ring on her severed arm across the room. Renton feels pity for her as well as Charles when the latter is killed by Holland.
  • An Arm and a Leg: Before her death, Ray loses her arm and desperately tries to reach for the wedding ring, but it's already too late.
  • Animal Motifs: As Holland seeks out Renton, one person he interrogates compares Ray to a kitsune and Charles to a tanuki.
  • Anti-Villain: Nicer to Renton than the good guys... Unfortunately, their connections to the military along with a personal grudge against Eureka make them enemies of the protagonists.
  • Battle Couple: They're married and they fight together.
  • Beauty Mark: Ray has one under her right eye.
  • Berserk Button: Ray was cool and collected when she was trying to take Renton and holding Eureka and the kids hostage to get him to cooperate. However when the kids refer to Eureka as "mama", Ray not knowing they are adopted; she loses it and begins to see Eureka as a monster mocking her for her infertility.
  • Blade Below the Shoulder: On Charles's LFO.
  • Broken Pedestal: Charles and Ray eventually become one to Renton by the second half of the series. After Renton decides enough is enough and flees the Gekkostate, they quickly take him under their wing, even viewing him like a son. However, the pedestal is shattered once and for all when Renton learns that they are planning to exact revenge on Holland.
  • The Cameo: Charles briefly shows up in Gravity Boys & Lifting Girl, which takes place before he becomes a mercenary, as an acquaintance of Ruri's and to impart some advice onto Sumner in his usual fashion.
  • Changeling Fantasy: An interesting take when they adopt Renton.
  • The Cracker: Ray turns out to be an expert hacker.
  • Despair Event Horizon: Charles' death for Ray.
  • Dies Wide Open: Charles leaves his eyes open after Holland kills him during the finale of "Helter Skelter".
  • Establishing Character Moment: They make their first appearance in twin LFOs riding a tandem lifting board.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: They deeply love each other and genuinely cared for Renton, given his later reaction to their deaths.
  • Everyone Went to School Together: Both of them were in the SOF with Holland.
  • Forgotten Fallen Friend: Enemy, technically, but this trope is averted either way. The characters who knew them, including Renton and Holland, often mention the Beams after their untimely demise in "Helter Skelter" for Charles and "Memento Mori" for Ray.
  • Gender-Blender Name: Ray's name is usually for males.
  • Happily Married: For instance, when Charles meets Renton he points out how hot his wife is.
  • Hotblooded Sideburns: Charles has them.
  • Idiot Hair: Ray has a single strand of hair sticking up.
  • It's Personal: They hate Eureka because Dewey has convinced them that she's to blame for Ray's infertility. Sadly, the real truth is even worse; it's a combination of Adrock and Dewey's fault- Adrock created the device that wounded Ray, and Dewey was unable to properly link it to the Command Cluster before it malfunctioned.
  • Law of Inverse Fertility: Both want children badly, but unfortunately, Ray became infertile due to being in the blast radius of the Seven Swell that kickstarted the Summer of Love, which severely wounded her body. This is the source of their grudge against Eureka.
  • Mama Bear: Ray becomes quite protective over Renton.
  • Named After Somebody Famous: They are named after the famous musician Ray Charles.
  • Neat Freak: Both keep their ship, the Swan, utterly spotless, which signifies Ray's Villainous Breakdown when she trashes the ship in her grief over losing Charles.
  • Papa Wolf: Charles becomes quite protective over Renton. Well, until Renton realizes their true colors at least...
  • Parental Substitute: For Renton when he pulled a Screw This, I'm Outta Here! from the Gekkostate.
  • Punch-Clock Villain: They're just doing their jobs despite all of the evil things they did.
  • Shout-Out: Their names, to pianist Ray Charles and/or designers Charles and Ray Eames.
  • Single Woman Seeks Good Man: Ray is madly in love with Charles — the man who has proven to be an affable fellow (when not trying to kill the heroine) and still wanted to marry her even though she thought he would be ashamed of her infertility.
  • Taking You with Me: After her plan to kill Eureka and convince Renton to let her adopt him fails in "Memento Mori," she tries to ram her ship against the Gekko in an effort to kill them all including Renton during the episode's finale. Unfortunately for her, Holland kills her.
  • Too Dumb to Live: It's not wise to ram a ship into the Gekko that soon.
  • Villainous Breakdown: Ray loses it when Charles dies at the beginning of "Memento Mori." It's heart-rending to see the aftermath of her utterly trashing the Swan in her grief.
  • Wound That Will Not Heal: Ray was grievously wounded by the cataclysm caused when Silver Box assailed the Earth, causing injuries that were bad enough to destroy her childbearing processes.
  • Yandere: Ray is a Mama Bear variety.
  • You Monster!: Ray refers to Eureka as one.

    William B. Baxter 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/snapshot_dvd_01_10_2013_01_10_00_05_58.jpg
William B. "Will" Baxter is a young man living in the overgrown ruins of a town near Gearnus City with his wife Martha, who is suffering from the Desperation Disease.

Voiced by: Toshio Furukawa (JP), Keith Silverstein (EN)

  • The Bus Came Back: After Dewey launches his plan to destroy the Scub Coral with Oratorio Number 8, the impact of the attack causes fragments of the Scub Coral to destroy towers across the planet and send debris flying. The debris begins falling across the planet, with William watching the falling debris fly overhead his farm and turns to see Martha fully conscious due to the Command Cluster being destroyed, standing and smiling at him as his farm is engulfed in an explosion from the debris, killing them both. Or maybe not... the scene also hints Martha came back to get William and transport him into the Scub. Never Found the Body leaves this scene open to interpretation.
  • Embarrassing Middle Name: Which is why he doesn't tell Renton what "B" stands for.
  • Happily Married: Despite Martha having Desperation Disease, she and William have a happy and intimate marriage.
  • Mysterious Middle Initial: William doesn't tell Renton what the "B" in his name stands for because it's an embarrassing one.
  • Nice Guy: Cemented in him helping a collapsed Renton to his devotion to his wife.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: Will was the one who taught Renton the facts of nature and love; to really love and be with someone, he needs to keep his word and face the hardships in front of him. When Will asked Renton if there was someone he wanted to be with if the world ever came to an end, Renton immediately realized he wanted to reconcile with Eureka no matter what she thought of him and began to mature more.

    Martha Baxter 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/martha_baxter_18246.jpg
The wife of William B. Baxter. She suffers from what Renton first identifies as "Desperation Disease."

Voiced by: N/A

  • The Bus Came Back: When the control cluster was destroyed by Oratorio Number 8, her consciousness was brought back to her body which allowed her to regain control of her body. Forced out of her comma like state she walks over to the door of their house and looks at William and they both smile right before they are killed when the farm is crushed from debris from the recently destroyed Oratorio Number 8. Or maybe not... the scene also implies Martha came back to get William and transport him into the Scub because a bright light envelops them prior to the impact.
  • Emotionless Girl: Justified since she's suffering from Desperation Disease.
  • Happily Married: Despite Martha having Desperation Disease, she and William have a happy and intimate marriage.
  • Ill Girl: Martha has Desperation Disease.

    Master Norb 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Master_Norb_6321.jpg
A powerful Vodarac priest.

Voiced by: Rikiya Koyama (JP), Jun Fukuyama (JP, young), Jamieson Price (EN), Sam Riegel (EN, young)

  • Ascend to a Higher Plane of Existence: The final scene of the series implies that he, along with Sakuya and various other people who merged with the Scub Coral, leave with some of the Scub Coral that departs from the planet.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: For a venerated holy man, he sure as hell breaks the mold like you wouldn't believe.
  • The Chosen One: In the past, he was chosen by Sakuya.

    Sakuya 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/5286810387_5a6bce2776.jpg

Eureka's predecessor. Because she was a girl of mysterious power, the religious authority of Vodarac thought she was some sort of messiah and placed her in the central part of the temple. They banned any disciple from speaking to her, and allowed very few select disciples to care for her in a highly reverent, if sterile, manner. For forty years since her initial appearance, she had no significant contact with anyone. This changed when Norb was assigned to care for her.

Voiced by: Akiko Yajima (JP), Jennie Kwan (EN)

  • The Ageless: Looks the same age as she did before she transformed when Eureka meets with her inside the lotus flower.
  • And I Must Scream: She was turned into a giant lotus flower after she and Norb travelled to the Scub Coral.
  • Ascend to a Higher Plane of Existence: At the end of the series, the Nirvash states that Sakuya and the other humans who fused with the Scub will go to the universe beyond the rift in the Great Wall.
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: She fell in love with Norb because he was the first person to truly interact with her rather than merely worship her.
  • Older Than She Looks: Is at least Norb's age, but appears younger than Eureka when we see her. Justified as this is probably how she chooses to project herself, and it was how she looked when she, well, turned into a giant flower.
  • The Pollyanna: Given her backstory, she has every right to be miserable, but she's easily one of the friendliest and most optimistic characters around from what little we see of her.
  • Purple Eyes: Representative of her Coralian nature.
  • Star-Crossed Lovers: With Norb.
  • When She Smiles: Norb says he fell in love with her the moment he saw her smile for the first time.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She has lavender hair.

How well does it match the trope?
